Although it publicly launched late last year, Nashville health-tech startup Lucro held its true “coming out” party last week. Between the announcement of an investment from some of the nation’s largest hospital players and days spent spreading its message at the annual Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Las Vegas, the week brought lots of notice to the company that seeks to bring clarity to an industry overflowing with eager vendors looking to court hospitals.
Lucro, an enterprise founded by Martin Ventures, today announced it has secured funding from additional healthcare industry investors including Health Insight Capital, a subsidiary of HCA that invests in early stage companies, and Heritage Group, an investment team backed by the United States’ leading healthcare companies.
Health systems and hospitals are often inundated with pitches from those pushing product-based solutions to the point that they can’t see the differences between their options, let alone pick the right one for their specific needs. Lucro Marketplace is trying to bring order to that chaos.
LUCRO SOLUTIONS, whose Healthcare solutions marketplace is backed by Martin Ventures, could produce a sanity-check for overwhelmed buyers, a boon for many vendors — and a major headache for purveyors of technologies, products and services that have been “oversold and under-delivered.”
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lucro, an enterprise backed by Martin Ventures, today announced the launch of a new marketplace that accelerates decision-making for healthcare leaders, allowing them to discover, compare and collaborate with their peers around innovative solutions. Many of the largest healthcare organizations in the U.S., collectively representing more than 1,000 hospitals, have engaged as early adopters to use the marketplace in advance of its launch in the spring of 2016.
Lucro will be presenting at the 2015 Becker’s CEO Roundtable Conference on November 18th in Chicago, Illinois. Making a special announcement, Founder and CEO Bruce Brandes will lead conference attendees in “Connecting Innovation to Providers and Providers to Solution: Introducing a New Platform for Industry Collaboration.”
